It's not that we haven't done much this past week, it's just that I haven't taken the time to stop and write.
This past weekend Tim and I went to the Family Life Weekend to Remember Marriage Conference in Whistler. Aside from -10 C weather, it was an excellent weekend. This is our third time at the Weekend to Remember and we find we always come away feeling strengthened. I definitely recommend it, whether you want to bring your marriage from a 1 to a 2 or from a 9 to a 10.
On the way to Whistler, we dropped Caleb off for a special weekend with Auntie Karen in Squamish. He had a great time, watching videos, going to Science World, playing computer games, and generally getting spoiled by an Auntie who loves him very much.
The other 3 kids stayed home with Grandma and Grandpa and figured out how to get all their snow gear on without Mommy there to help. From what I heard, they had a blast playing in the freshly fallen snow, all 16 cm (6 1/2") of it.
Yesterday we spent lunch and the afternoon at the Scheltens doing History and also lots of playing and visiting too.
Today was baking day and this week it's Caleb's turn, so we made Chocolate Chip Cookies with M&M Peanuts, Smarties, and Chocolate Chips. Yum!
Tonight was Living Jewels (Girls' Club) and Boys' Hockey. The fire alarm went off during club, so we lined up at the door and were told to be ready, but that we didn't need to go outside unless they came back and told us to. So we were spared the freezing coldness, whew! The firetruck came and the firefighters had to check the whole building. Needless to say, our evening didn't run in quite the order it usually does, but we still had a good time.
